Weekend wrap: Dec. 15

Just 11 games went in the record books this past weekend, but even as the schedule was light, the action was quite the opposite.

As far as ranked teams go, No. 10 Wisconsin-Superior swept Marian, but by no means was it an easy task.

Superior started out with a 7-2 win Friday night and then escaped with an 8-7 win Saturday afternoon.

Friday’s win featured 59 shots on Marian goalie Ali Glazer, while Saturday’s victory saw the Yellowjackets score three goals in the first 3:19 to take an 8-6 lead and then hold off a late push from the Sabres.

Fifth-ranked Gustavus Adolphus defeated No. 7 Wisconsin-Stevens Point 3-1 on Saturday as the Gusties scored three in the third, including the game-winner from Emily Reibert at 17:44.

No. 8 Adrian played to a 2-2 tie with Massachusetts-Boston. Kaylyn Schroka scored both for the Bulldogs and Alyssa Sullivan and Angela Dandreo tallied for UMB. Both goaltenders (Adrian’s Jade Walsh, UMB’s Moe Bradley) finished with 31 saves.

Obviously, expect the rankings to see somewhat of a shakeup this week.

In other action, Franklin Pierce went on the road and swept Canton, Potsdam took both at home from New England College, St. Scholastica and Augsburg both topped Wisconsin-Eau Claire, with Augsburg goalie Rebecca Sonnek picking up the 22-save shutout in a 2-0 win, and Bethel edged Concordia (Minn.) 4-3 in overtime Saturday as Megan Niblock played the role of overtime hero 45 seconds into extra time.

Happy Holidays! We’ll see you in 2015!

    Hasn’t New Hampshire also played one more game?

    • After Further Review

      Yes, UNH and Maine have played one extra from the Frozen Fenway (waste of more outdoor hockey) game.

    That puts UNH closer to missing the playoffs rather than “fighting for home ice”. Who’s the spin doctor prescribing your meds, Jim?

  • UNH Fan

    UNH won’t make home ice and they will not make it to the Garden.  They are doing well now but it took them all season to get it together.  Once they face a do or die situation I think they will crumble.  They are just too inexperienced.

      they definitely won’t make home ice, but don’t count them out of the semis.  If they draw BC or BU for the quarter finals, I would say they definitely won’t make it (they always stink it up at Kelley Rink) but if they draw Lowell, Maine or Merrimack, i think they have an outside shot.  They’ve played all those teams tough so far picking up a win against each (1-0-1 @ Merrimack, overtime losses to Maine and MC).  Since DeSmith has been in goal the D has been much improved, just need a little scoring.  Moses isn’t a true scoring talent like Thompson or Butler were, and the Freshman are starting to put it togeter (Casey Thrush is second on the team in goals).  I don’t have high hopes for UNH, but you wouldn’t be a fan if you didn’t have a little hope right?
